Need a Dentist for your Child?

Children Dentistry, which is also known as Pediatric Dentistry is a branch of dentistry that deals specifically with dental care for children. Its primary goal is to ensure that children have healthy teeth and develop good oral care habits from a young age.

Why Children Dentistry is Important

Children's dentistry is important because your child's dentist will become familiar with your child's overall oral development, which may help them to spot potential dental problems early. The pediatric dentist will also provide you with professional tips on how to take care of your child's teeth at home. The advice typically involves the proper way to brush and floss your child's teeth and additional information based on the specific condition of your child's teeth.

Another topic the dentist will address is your child's eating habits. Parents should ensure the child gets enough fluoride and stay away from foods rich in sugar. Besides, a child should never go to sleep while nursing or with a juice or milk in their bottle.

The First Visit to the Dentist

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends children to start visiting the dentist just before their first birthday. This first visit to the pediatric dentist office is one of the most critical times for building a strong dental health foundation and can leave a lasting impression on a child's mind, which will be carried over well into adulthood. Therefore, it is best to make your child's first visit as pleasurable as possible. Below are some useful tips to make your child's first trip to the dentist enjoyable:

  • Nurture good dental habits as early as possible. Make your child used to dental care and hygiene by buying dental stuff designed for kids such as a colourful toothbrush with soft bristles and an attractive handle shaped into a dinosaur or a puppy
  • Making dental hygiene fun. You can start by looking inside your child's mouth at least once a day and count their teeth using a nursery rhyme. Or use a mirror so that your child can see his or her own set of teeth and show them how squeaky clean their teeth are and how fresh their breath is after brushing. You could also role play by having your child look into your mouth and pretend to be the dentist
  • Talk to your child about the cool things that dentists do such as making the teeth feel like brand new, fresh and squeaky clean and all the high-tech instruments that the dentists use
  • There are also many children's books that could serve as an excellent introduction to dentistry before the first visit
  • Acquaint your child with the dentist and his office before the day of the examination
  • Proper scheduling of your child's dental appointment is critical. A morning schedule is the best time since the child is full of energy and well rested
